Greenwood County Council earlier this week heard extensive information on the fiscal year 2015 general fund budget.
Council has been going through a series of budget workshops in which it hears from various county staff and department heads about different segments of the budget. During a nearly three-hour session Tuesday, council received details from county manager Toby Chappell regarding the general fund budget.
The fiscal year 2015 general fund budget is balanced at just more than $19,87 million. That number represents a slight increase on the 2014 budget, which was just less than $19,85 million.
As for the drivers of the budget, information presented by county staff shows that 50 percent of the county’s budget goes to salaries, 19 percent goes toward fringe benefits for employees and all other expenses make up the remaining 31 percent.
